Several days in advance: Using royal icing, make 450 tip 104 roses with tip 10 bases (make bases only 1/2 to 3/4 in. high). Make extras to allow for breakage; let dry.
Prepare cake board and wrap with foil. Ice 2-layer 7 3/4 x 5 5/8 in., 10 3/4 x 7 5/8 in., 13 x 9 7/8 in. and 16 1/2 x 12 3/8 in. cakes smooth and prepare for
Push-In Pillar Construction. Attach roses to cake sides with tip 6 dots of icing.
At reception: Assemble cakes and position ornament** on top.
**Note: Always place a separator plate or cake board cut to fit, on the cake before you position any figurine or ornament. This protects both the cake and your keepsake. For extra stability, secure your figurine to the plate with double-stick craft tape.

I did something similar using a then current Wilton idea... it was great. The people I made the cake for appreciated the tier construction instead of stacked because they wanted several flavors of cake and they were able to choose different flavors for eacha layer.
